Focus: HYPERACTIVITY

Remove Unnecessary Items From the Student's Work Area  (U.S. Department of Education, 2004)

Students who tend to distract themselves and others by playing with objects behave better when their work area is uncluttered.

Take away (or direct the student to put away) any items that the student does not need for the work assignment but might be tempted to play with (e.g., extra pens, paper clips).
